Asrock X370 Taichi Overclocking Thread - Page 226

post #2251 of 2553
I have a Seasonic Focus Gold 850W that I won in the contest on here actually and I'm pretty confident its not the power supply as I ran the system 100% fine with the 1060. Granted it uses less power but not a lot less. Its a solid PSU that I'm 99% confident isn't the problem. I have an HX 750 I could try swapping in to see so I might try that when I have some time. Thanks for the input. I have had problems similar to this that was the fault of the PSU before but it never blue screened the way this has and again safemode seems fine. And when I've stressed the system with p95, HCI memtest or firestrike. It seems to be just GTA 5 mainly that has caused it.

But I will try using the HX when I have some time thanks for the advice. Made me remember I have one. It'll just be a HUGE PAIN to swap that in for this one and require me to undo all the time I've put into cable management frown.gif

It's an evga FTW2 so its ICX but I have used precision for all that stuff. The first thing that gave me a hint that maybe somethings off though is that....the LEDs that change color when the temperatures change? They only change if the software is running in the background. With the 1060 which was ALSO AN ICX it would work as long as I had it set. When I first installed the card after I ran precision like 10000000 times it finally would start changing when the program was closed, same as the 1060. But once again it doesn't since the fresh install. I dunno if this is out of the ordinary or not because I only have a sample size of 2 cards, but they were both ICX and the 1060 didn't have this minor problem. Which is super minor but frustrating since I, you know, paid extra to have that as one of the features.

I have a quick question. I bought my Corsair Vengeance LPX CMKGX4M2B3000C15 kit back in March on sale for $92.50. Default xmp is 2933
15,17,17,17,35,52 . I have been luck and have been running full speed since Bios 1.60. I have tightened the timings to 14,15,15,15,31,47. It will not boot @3066 or above no matter how loose the timings are. Overall I'm pretty happy. Back then the biggest concern was getting memory that went beyond the 2133 all the reviewers were posting.

My question is if I were to buy a G Skill Trident Z kit (Samsung B-die) at or above the 3200 cl 14 would I even see any real difference beyond 3-5% to justify the $200?
I have a feeling that even if I did get a 3600 cl 16 kit my IMC wouldn't go beyond the 3200 that seems to be the average for most users.

The super obvious questions are what else could you buy for that money? What’s your spec? Other than that what programs are running slowly that you’d need to speed up the PC for ?
post #2254 of 2553
3600C16 kit is actually a lower binned kit compared to 3200C14 and 3200C14 should hit 3466C14 with a bit of increase in voltage and some tweaking.

Ryzen's memory wall is actually around 3600 for SR 1 DPC modules, some CPUs do it, some don't.

200$ is a lot to spend on memory, a new GPU might help more.

Guys i am latest bios 3.20.

I am trying to copy values from previous bios overclock but when i enter value for vcore offset voltage to 11875 it changes to -0.10000.

I used pstate method to overclock to 3.8.

I updated bios due to buying elgato hd60 pro as it requires bios update.

yeah, that's what I figured. I seen some videos showing a little higher fps with higher speed memory. I would Have that that 3600 cl16 is the same or slightly better than 3200 cl14. I currently have a r9 390 and am holding out until I can score a custom Vega 56 around the $400 MSRP. If I didn't have a free sync monitor I would have bought a GTX 1080 for around $500 and would have been set. Anyways, thanks for the replies.

Anyone know if you can safely remove the IO shroud and replace the wifi card with a 2x2?
post #2258 of 2553
Guys i was using Bios 2.30 and now i am on latest bios.

To achieve this overclock i set offset to 11875 but now in new bios it goes to -.10000

Is this a bug? What should the offset value be on new bios to achieve the overclock shown in the picture.

Thankseea67b9f5d9f9c6ecacd832a8ec52c6d.jpg

Pstate values are blurry in the pic.

Here are the pstate values.

3825
1187500
99
8
3a

Offset 11875 but now new bios does not take that value.

I don't think its the fact that its a 1080, I think its either this specific 1080 or some issue software issue I have no idea how to diagnose.

Theres plenty of people I believe in that thread with 1080s and Ryzens. I'd be more concerned if people on THIS SITE were reporting this problem en masse than just random people online. This is a site where people have a lot more knowledge than just the average joe who slaps together a PC and is maybe using a power supply that barely can power his system and it sometimes fluctuates over the allotted power draw or maybe doesn't know how to install the card right or something like that.

It's EVGA though. This is why I go with them. If I have enough problems I'm SURE that they would either 1) figure out some way to fix it 2) step me down to a 1070 and maybe give me some credit in their store or 3) accept a return. As I said thie past few months including that 1060 and shpiping and taxes I've spent about 1000$ on their website, and I hvae had evga Nvidia cards forever (brand loyalty is stupid as I said, I have owned an equal number of Nvidia and AMD cards over my lifetime) BUT EVGA has the best customer service hands down and the best warranties hands down so I stick with them. If this suddenly went down the toilet i'd change AIB choices but yeah.

Thanks anyway though mang. I'm kinda hoping its a mothnerboard thing as at least then I can go out to microcenter, buy a new one (which is only around 150-200$ compared to going out to buy a new 1080 which is like 575$) and then return the bad one or send it to Asrock for a refund if I'd need. However, I dont want to gut the system just on a hunch and then still have the same problems and STILL need to send in the GPU after spending all that time replacing the board lol.


Thanks again though mate.

Hey kmac - Do yourself a favor...(I should've listen to 1 or 2 of the guys on here who told me from the get-go and before my chin hair turned gray) and go exchange your ASSrock Taicrappy mobo for another top of the line motherboard such as Asus CROSSHAIR VI Hero X370. I did a lot of research last night and BOY I'm a such happy camper now. Not sure if you read my recent ASSrock issues I was having in the past few days but If i hadn't done benches via CPU-Z and Cinebech I wouldn't have discovered that my 1800x was running at 4 core performance. This was by far the single worst god damn experience I've ever had with a motherboard. That Taichi + 1800x was a nightmare to get it to work stable in default settings. Why should ANYONE need to play around with the bios to get a stable working environment without the OC attempts? ASSrock is aware of this issue and it seems as if they are not sure what they are doing or if it's fixable.

It is almost as if I somehow booted up using x1800 on an Intel Assrock Taichi mobo, no joke man. I too was getting exactly what you are getting when playing games. My monitor would just turn off and would get a "00" debug code, this means CPU isn't working right due to a flaky motherboard's bios. This would also happen if/when I would run Cinebench, my screen would freeze and black screen and 00 debug code. The funny part is I had everything running at default. My memory was at stock 2400mhz and tested stable in memtest86 for 6 hours so memory was fine and most likely the CPU was fine too. Don't waste your time and return that pathetic buggy motherboard. I kind a feel sorry for people who invested in this mobo and i bet half of owners probably are not even aware their 1800x is running half speed. lol I agree the mobo looks good and looks good on paper and you get a lot for the money but if the soul of the mobo (bios) isn't ripe then it has no stable personality. I felt like i was working with a mobo with down syndrome. Return that POS dude. It's not your 1080 bcuz i have a 1080 too and runs perfectly. I can guarantee you if you swap it out tomorrow all of your troubles will go away. I mean, even chew dude on here proved the mobo needs a lot of fixing, and most likely it'll probably need a new PCB revision as Microcenter had 6 of them for sale as open box and none in stock as new. I asked the agent there and he even said that they are not sure why they haven't gotten any new stock for a over a month now. You know why? ASSrock probably knows they were selling bricks/lemons. They wasted so many hours of my time I feel like suing them for it. God damn Pathetic.

Look at me now:



Notice how I'm not anymore getting the multi bug at 550Mhz like i was before during 100% load. And also my max turbo is also working perfectly at 4.1Ghz as well. This wasn't present on the ASSfhuckachi at all.

Before:





Microcenter has a very nice deal going now - even better than when I got the Taichi. You receive a $50 instant discount if u purchase mobo+cpu. I ended up returning the x1800 as well and got me a full microcenter store credit. I ended up paying only $24 more to get this fully operational motherboard + 1800x. Total was $539.98 + Tax brand new and sealed. You will not need to mess around with the bios to be able to run 100% stable. Remove it from your case, dump it back in the box and divorce it. smile.gif
